  • Dual Collaborative Gameplay: Players can choose to embody either Ray or Thomas, each with a distinctive gameplay style, specific abilities, and weapons. They collaborate with their other brother taking advantage of each of their strengths and joining fire in the fiercest fights imaginable.
  • Deadly Gun Slinging: Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood offers a visceral shooting experience, relying on gun skills and upgradeable guns. Whether close or long range, they harness a variety of weapons from heavy caliber canons to machine guns and various pistols for face-to-face duels. Every accurate shot increases their concentration, which allows them to unleash deadly shooting modes when outnumbered, and even deadlier ones when the brothers work together.
  • Uncharted Territory: Bound in Blood depicts the West before it was tamed with iconic settings full of outlaws. The McCall brothers face a gritty Lady, a renegade Apache chief, a greedy Mexican bandit, and a vindictive Colonel, all driven by greed and moral disregard. The players enjoy a wide variety of situations, using horses, canoes, and wagons to explore the open natural landscapes of the mythical Wild West and of its legendary period.
  • Innovative Western-themed Multiplayer: Gunslingers, Bandits, and Marshalls struggle online for the bounty. Multiple characters are unlocked for team-based objectives modes or the straight forward team deathmatch. Bound in Blood introduces a Bounty system, which sees the players increase the bounty on their head with more kills and try to get rid of the deadliest among them to increase their bank-rolls! Objectives-driven, team based missions let them relive the most famous scenes of the Wild West.

As the McCall brothers, players enter a doomed quest for the legendary Gold of Juarez leading them from a ravaged Georgia during the Civil War to the Aztec ruins of Mexico.

I admit that I was mildly disappointed when I first started this game. The graphics are fantastic (as good as Far Cry 2 or the latest Call of Duty games) but the first chapter, based on the American Civil war has an oddly retro feel about the gameplay. It feels like you are back in Call of Duty 2 with different weapons and uniforms.

However, once you are transported into the (brilliantly rendered) Wild West, the fun really begins! You really become a Clint Eastwood anti-hero.

In most FPS games, I barely use side arms. They are usually pathetic, almost useless pieces of kit. However, in this game, the pistol is king. There are several from which to choose. All of them deadly. They vary between the very powerful but slow loading, to the less powerful but quicker loading. They are so good, I forgot I had a rifle at times.

There are plenty of weapons available from dead victims. However, better, shinier ones are available for a price from the gun stores, so you need to pick up cash whenever you find it.

There are a few innovations. There is "concentration" mode which slows down the action to take on multiple targets. I didn't use it much. There is also "cover" mode, which crouches your character behind cover if you approach a corner or crate etc. The mouse then creates a rolling sort of movement which allows you to expose a minimum amount of yourself to enemy fire. It works well but may not be everybody's cup of tea.

You also have gunfights. This is done with the keyboard moving your character left and right to keep your (moving) opponent focussed in the centre of the screen. At the same time, you have to keep your gun hand close to the pistol. Irritatingly, it tends to drift away.

I enjoyed it. It was fun (for a while) but it didn't make me want to continue playing it. I could put it down and go back in a week and I wouldn't be excited to get back into it again.

The storyline was, frankly, boring. I found myself skipping cutscenes because they just weren't that fun to sit through.

Secondly, I ended up going the same guy for most of the campaign (Thomas I believe, whichever one was the rifle/bow expert) for some supposedly more stealthy combat, which basically included 'silent' weapons like the knives and bow which just weren't silent since the game is all about scripted events. Fire an arrow into a guys head and he dies, sure, but the 5 enemies that spawned with him all know where you are regardless and they are still just as pissed off.

Another thing was how linear it was. I hate invisible walls, and this game has more than its fair share in various forms.

The games cover system made me want to hurt myself physically. It was pretty awful. Clearly this was taken from some Xbox or PS3 game and ported over to PC. Here's a hint for you dev's, IT DOESN'T WORK.

Even the big open areas where you had wanted poster missions to complete had the same things over and over, 'oh no, yet another person's wagon held up by 3 bandits hidden behind the same rocks as the last time I came across this exact same encounter'. Not that there's any benefit for you saving these guys, as all they do is say thank you. There's no Karma, nothing game changing.

With that said though, the graphics and setting were a nice refreshment. There is some beautiful scenery despite the boring gameplay. One bit in particular is where you blow up a dam and the water drains from a lake, which was fantastic.

Ive been playing this game all day and its just brilliant.
Graphics 5/5
Sound 5/5
Gameplay 5/5
Optimization 5/5
Fun 10/5
I love every part of this game graphics are superb high resolution textures with smooth frame rates. I get 95-102 fps on average with a ati 4870 1gb. You may be thinking but that's a really good graphics card but its just the animation is so well designed you would not be thinking your playing over 100fps. So yeah well optimized to play well.

As for Sound no complaints guns sound like guns speech acting is great battle and explosions around you sound realistic as hell.

Gameplay its self is gripping and you never wanna get off it.
Story mode follows 3 brothers a priest and two i guess just plain cowboys who want women booze and treasure which you will find makes a compelling story line.

Theirs so much i could tell you about what you can do in this game like slow motion killing and using your mouse as a rope to get up tress and shoot targets. But i can't be arsed because it would be easier to tell you what you can't do. ubi have made a classic western game here Just buy it you wont be disappointed.

I guess i should mention since ppl on amazon seem to really hate DRM. Theirs no DRM on this game infact you don't need the disk in the drive to play and it don't ask you for your CD-key on installation just in multiplayer.

I've been wanting to play a really good Wild West shooter for a very long time. I like the genre - which is sadly under-represented these days - and hoped Call of Juarez would be something like a Wild West Flashpoint, or come close to matching the extreme and deadly gun fun of the Lucusarts classic Outlaws; it isn't and it doesn't.

Despite looking good - and it does look very good - the gameplay is so old skool you'd be forgiven for thinking the last 15 years of PC game development had never happened. The missions are all heavily scripted and trigger based meaning that you'll play through section after section over and over until you learn the enemy patterns as mapped down by the designers, with no variation in gameplay whatsoever. For example, at times you'll be accompanied by an AI controlled squadmate who will die at the exact same point every single time - no matter how well you play, while being able to withstand limitless amounts of damage until that moment arrives. This is poor and smacks of lazy and uninspired thinking, and more importantly ruins any sense of immersion.

On the plus side - it sounds and looks very good and the "bullet time" mechanic, while not original, does work well. Sadly, it deserves to be in a much better game. Call of Juarez 3? On this evidence I won't be holding my breath.
